I want to tell you the story about my favorite blow mold, which is named Jack. I’m not sure if my father coined the name Jack or if it was me – but somehow this blow mold ended up being called Jack!
Now Jack was not always my favorite blow mold…in fact, my family had this Halloween decoration for as long as I can remember and at the very beginning I HATED Jack.

The Dollar Tree is full of spooktacular ideas and craft supplies around this time of year. I confess, I try to stop in once a week or once every couple weeks to see what is new in stores for Halloween around this time of year.
Last week, my local Dollar Tree had began to sell Halloween craft supplies and my first Dollar Tree Halloween haul contained everything I needed and more to create a new spooky Halloween wreath that I can haunt my halls with (I’ll be making another trip back there soon to make a second wreath for my Halloween-loving mom as well!)

My favorite pair of leopard flats have seen better days. This prompted me on a search for a replacement pair and I was not disappointed in my upgrade! Leopard flats are an absolute must as a closet staple. They are a fun print that can mix well and match with many different outfits. I ended up paying $15.99 for my pair from Amazon.com! I am always a bit wary of ordering shoes from Amazon, but these “Dream Pairs” were true to size, comfortable and the seller had a TON of different colors and patterns to select (I’ll keep that in mind for the future!). It also is a bonus that they’re Prime eligible.

This Friday I went to an estate sale that had a surprisingly good assortment of Halloween goodies. I ended up going home with a Better Homes and Gardens Halloween Idea book that was published in 2000 for a few bucks and these delightfully “vintage” (I don’t know if 1986 is technically considered vintage yet…) McDonald’s Halloween Happy Meal pails.

I love putting together outfits! I know to some it seems like a chore, but I love clothes and how they are a fantastic means to express yourself. In my opinion, your outfit can make you a walking work of art. You never know when your duds might just be someone’s inspiration. One of my favorite looks in the summer/early fall is pairing graphic tees with fun, flowing, patterned skirts.
Check out my looks below for some scary good ideas:
